Marriott International’s upscale lifestyle hotel chain W Hotels has expanded its global presence with the opening of first property in Japan.
Located in Midosuji Boulevard, W Osaka features a minimalist black monolith façade designed by Osaka-born architect Tadao Ando.
Amsterdam-based studio Concrete conceptualised the hotel’s interior design. The studio also designed the W London and W Verbier.
The hotel is inspired from Osaka’s streetscapes and features bright spaces, clean lines and bold colour schemes.
It has 337 rooms and suites with floor-to-ceiling windows, spacious bathrooms with rain showers and luxury amenities.
W Osaka’s dining venues include bistro-diner Oh La La, Teppanyaki MYDO restaurant, and omakase-style Sushi UKIYO.
